TWD: Berries-Apple Crisps




This week it was Em of the Repressed Pastry Chef who had the pleasure to choose a recipe and it was this nice Crisp.
Until yesterday I thought it was impossible to find fresh cranberries her in Rome, but while I was going to work I was looking around in the Campo de' Fiori Market and actually saw an unique package of cranberries !! It's a special seller who had them he seels the most incredible and exotic foods and he is so expensive I didn't have the courage to ask him the price of those berries !


Anyway I had made the Crisp a few days ago in the pre-flu era and I used frozen wild berries and raisins for it. I had lots of millet flakes so I used those instead of oats but in spite of all my changes the Crisp was very nice and easy to put together !
Please visit the TWD blogroll for a variety of mixed recipes !

I think using blueberries in place of cranberries is brilliant and perfect for if you are feeling under the weather. :)

Your crisp looks delicious. Cranberries are easy to find in the US, but I think your choice of wild berries sounds good!

Your crisp looks great! I don't have wildberries, but may try this with blueberries, although I have cranberries in the freezer.

One of the great things about crisps is how versatile they are, they work with just about any fruit and topping! I love your version.

Wouldn't it ne nice if we have met in Rome and show me the city, especially the market. Anyway, next time perhaps.

On the other note, this berry crisp looks scrumptious.

Often don't think of things NOT available in other places. But with the wild berries you made a great crisp. Yum!!
